Evening everyone. This is my first post where I combine both the power of the Indieweb and that of the Steem blockchain in one location, that of my own personal web site, rather than posting on Steem first. After reading mixed reviews of the Steempress plugin, I’ve taken the leap of faith; hopefully I’ll be able to drive more community engagement this way from both sides of the web.
The Current Problem
One of the most prominent issues that are facing us today are the number of technologies that are all built to accomplish the same thing, that of community engagement. Particularly the concepts behind the Fediverse, The IndieWeb, and social media blockchains. It’s very difficult to tell which, if any will win out in the end, but for now, I’m with everyone at once, trying to gain as much engagement as I possibly can, while considering the rewards secondary to the experience on Steem. Of course, they are part of it, for it would not be a proof-of-brain cryptocurrency otherwise, but let’s just see what happens with this. Will it succeed, or will it fail?
